This is a mystical and wondrous location. The magic of the Highland starts ever so slowly upon you and soon you find yourself rapt. It was never on my list. I am about ready to throw my list away.

Just what we expected and hoped for in the Scottish Highlands - imposing mountains, huge lochs dotted with little islands, occasional forests, all observed from a single track road with passing places and courteous fellow motorists. Heavenly!

The last time we visited Scotland we only drove through Glen Torridon - and took plenty of pictures. This time we stayed a while longer and went up Ben Eighe (Ruadh-Stac Mor & Spidean Coire nan Clach). It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done. The views from Ben Eighe are absolutely amazing.... More

In my opinion, this the most stunning landscape on the Scottish mainland. Also best observed when the weather is changing and there is a storm on the rise. Just stop, listen, watch and enjoy it.

The mountains are big here rising up some 3500 feet straight from sea level. The grandeur and scale is beyond compare. A drive through the glen is a must if you are in this neck of the woods, both ways up and down. Regardless of the weather it is an impressive place.

I have travelled through this area a few times, and it never disappoints, its stunning in all weather, very dramatic, I hope to spend longer this year, a great place for mountain climbing and photography.

I have lived with images of the Torridon Hills since I was 16 and first studied geology... The Torridonian Hills look like nothing else in the country and are geologically unique: just spectacular, assuming the clouds lift long enough...

Stunning but watch out for the midges. Worth buying a midge head veil! Lots of great walks in the area and particularly recommend the Sheldaig penisular walk, which can be as short or long as you like, with fabulous views. Also recommend driving on down the coast for half an hour and then turning and retracing the route. Views in... More
